LAN Optimization - measurement tools for benchmarking

Hello,

I am assigned to work on a LAN optimization project. Where provide solution to upgrade current infrastructure from various hardware to Cisco LAN switches.

My question:

1. Is there a tools to measure current performance (LAN utilization/LAN port utilization/etc)? where i can do a comparison after the upgrade.

2. What tool is available to manage the LAN switches beside CiscoWorks / CNA (Cisco Network Assistant) ?

3. Any standard best practise i can apply?

Would appreciate you to share your experience and recommendation.

Thanks.

Rgds,

Christopher

Re: LAN Optimization - measurement tools for benchmarking

You can download solar winds for a 30 day free trial. We use the engineers toolset to gather the info that you are looking for.

If you want something to manage the switches solar can do that as well for a cost as can CISCO LMS which will set you back a few thousand dollars!
